The Art of Memoir Writing    Rosie Jackson


NEW WORKSHOPS starting 14 September 2016  

How to start writing your own life story


Writing your own story is a wonderfully healing and fulfilling process. Whether it’s for your family, children, grandchildren, publication, self-publishing, or just for yourself, a memoir will help make sense of your experience, and provide an opportunity to reflect on the deeper meaning of your life. More information here.

Our third FWC Flash Fiction Picnic  

Sunday 7 August at the ECOS Stones


Come along and have a great time, listening to an amazing variety of work in a relaxed atmosphere.

Those who would like to enter the competition will need to prepare a max.500 word entry, based on the prompt:  

It's not what you think it is.

Bring your entry along to read - the audience will vote for the winner and a small prize may be involved!

If you haven't time to write an entry, or just want to see what happens, come along as an audience member.

We will meet at the ECOS Stones outside the Merlin Theatre, and if wet will transfer to the Merlin foyer.  

Come along at 1pm with a picnic if you wish, or at 2pm for the start of the readings.

The event is free for FWC members, and £2 for guests.


Please send all subs to Liz Hutchinson. Thank you.
